In 2002, the Giunco family made its first barrel of wine from a handpicked selection of grapes grown at their Colts Neck farm. That first barrel became known as Chambourcin Riserva and won its first gold medal in the 2004 NJ Wine Competition. The Chambourcin Riserva 2014 vintage continues to make us proud by winning yet another Gold Medal at the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Compeitition!
That barrel became the inspiration for the remaining 4JG’s estate wines. Our appealing small lot wines get their rich charm and flavors through a combination of great estate grapes and traditional wine making techniques.
4JG's Orchards & Vineyards is located in Central New Jersey in a historic farming area. The winery is named after the four founding family members. The Giunco family has farmed in Monmouth County for over 60 years. Founded in 1999, Four JG's Orchards & Vineyards is located on a farm with barns and houses that date back to the early 1700's.
4JG's attention to good farming practices and careful selection of rootstock that grow well in the soils of Monmouth County has already produced many award winning wines. Careful adherence to the modern techniques of wine growing are employed at 4JG’s. From winter pruning to fall harvest, the vineyard is closely monitored and maintained to guarantee the wine grapes are exposed to the best combination of hand crafting, sunlight, and water. 4JG's winemakers follow a simple philosophy that only the best grapes grown on their farm are selected to go into the bottle. All 4JG's wines carry the Quality Wine alliance - QWA designation.
We continue to produce 4JG’s wines with the same care put into every vintage, and love to drink and share them with family and friends.
